If both the terminal of the same length and you are not able to identify the positive terminal, just connect a digital multimeter in Diode testing mode to test LED glow, or if you don't have a digital multimeter and if you can see internal leads of an LED you can identify as shown in the attached figure.

I have an answer for both how to identify terminal with and without a multimeter. Just check the diagram showing the internal leads of the LED.
